Bronx students' work rewarded with special Yankees seats

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

The Yankees have taken one of their newest stadium attractions and turned it into a reward for good work done by New York City kids.

For Monday's ALCS Game 3, the members of the Eagle Safety Patrol for The Immaculate Conception School on 151st Street got seats in the coveted "Judge's Chambers" in right field.

"They are so excited," said Sister Patrice Owens. "Playoffs, but to be in the Judge's Chambers, is just a thrill for them. These are kids that do a lot of service in the school and this is kind of a great reward for them."

Sister Owens and her students say they hope their presence breaks Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge out of his recent hitting slump.
